Want to buy a necklace that suits you? We are happy to help you
The perfect necklace is worth gold! It will show off beautifully with the tone of your skin, and you can wear your favorite gemstone! But how do you choose the perfect necklace for women or men? We help you with the search for your new favorite piece of jewelry.
Which link for the chain?
We could fill a whole page about the different links used for jewelry. There are many options to choose from, but there are only a few links that are very popular and that you see often.
In our webshop you will find chains with gourmet links, also known as Cuban links. This chain is somewhat similar to the basic link chain, but because gourmet links are turned and ground, they lie flat on the skin. This makes the necklace more beautiful and you enjoy a more luxurious look.
Other links that you regularly encounter include the twisted link chain, the Venetian chain and the Figaro. The Figaro is a variant of the gourmet link, but a longer connecting link is added every few links. This gives the necklace a special look.
Necklace gold - what do you pay attention to?
Gold has a luxurious look, is precious and compliments warm skin tones perfectly. In our online store you will find gold filled and solid gold chains. You've probably seen gold-plated chains before, but what's the difference between these three options?
Gold plated, Gold filled or solid?
Gold plated jewelry has a thin layer of gold. The base metal of the chain is base metal. Often it concerns nickel, zinc, copper or brass. The base metal becomes negatively charged so that it can bind to gold molecules that are positively charged. This creates a golden layer on the chain, but this layer is often very thin. A gold plated chain is sensitive to damage and the color of the other metal can be seen through the gold layer over time.
Gold filled jewelry is of a much better quality. This means that the chain consists of 5% (1/20) of 14 carat gold. The layer of gold that is bonded to the base metal through heat and pressure is much thicker. This makes the chains more valuable and they stay beautiful longer.
We also sell the solid gold chain. This has a beautiful glow, is very valuable, does not discolour. The links of the chain are twisted into each other and are precisely diamond cut. The links are polished as a finishing touch. That makes the links light-reflecting. In short, a necklace that you can enjoy for a lifetime!
Necklace silver - what do you pay attention to?
Silver is affordable, beautiful and of good quality. It also knows how to compliment cool skin tones. Pure silver, like pure gold, is too soft to be processed into jewellery. That is why the precious metal is mixed with other metals (often copper). This is called sterling silver.
How do you know if a silver chain is of good quality? A piece of jewelery in which the alloy largely consists of a base metal instead of silver, is worth less and will not stay beautiful for as long. In addition, it could irritate sensitive skin. In our webshop you will find necklaces made of 925 sterling silver. This means that the weight of the alloy consists of at least 92.5% silver. It guarantees that the chain is of an extremely good quality. All our silver necklaces are also Rhodium Plated. This coating provides extra protection against all kinds of influences of use.
A black chain
A gold or silver necklace offers a luxurious look and can be combined with any outfit and any style. However, you may associate precious metals with high-end styles and prefer a natural or alternative look. A black chain is the ideal choice. It suits every skin tone and in combination with light clothing it is a real eye-catcher. In addition, black chains are very strong, cheap and comfortable to wear, even if it is a short chain.
The length of the necklace ladies and gentlemen
Have you chosen the material of the chain? Then you still have to choose the right length. The standard ladies' necklace is 45 centimeters long. Men more often opt for a chain of 50, 55 or 60 centimeters. However, don't be limited to standard sizes. There is as much as possible and the length of a necklace is a personal choice. Feel free to view the size label in the product photos to choose the right length!
Take into account the neckline of your clothes. After all, it is annoying when your beloved necklace is in most cases on the neckline and quickly disappears under your shirt. In addition, it often does not look good if the hanger ends up just below or above the neckline of your clothing. It is better than choosing a chain that is a lot longer or a lot shorter.
In addition, you can choose to create layers by wearing multiple necklaces with different lengths. In this case, check which necklaces you already have in your jewelry box with which you want to combine your new acquisition.
With the length, also take into account the size of the pendant. Or maybe you don't want to wear a pendant on the chain. This can also affect the choice of chain length.
There is only one of each stone
Mónos means 'one' in Latin. Because as you may already know, each charm is individually on the website. This way you know exactly which shape and color combination your pendant has.
